LOVIN' it to the MAX
By soccerman1313 on


2012 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Have about 2000k on my 2012 Maxima. Traded it for a 10 Altima. Boy what a quality difference. Max is much more solid and quiet, faster, comfy, bose is amazing, and just a great car. Looked at similar cars in the class Infinity, BMW, Mercedes but all wouldn't deal much on price. Rolled out with Tech Package and premium for 37k oto.
We will see long term how things go but my last 3 rides have been nissan's Titan, Altima, now max.
Been reliable and great vehicles.
Read almost 100 reviews before buying and so far most the complaints I haven't noticed.

Best Features

Bose, Nav, seats, smooth ride and quietness of interior, big kick when pulling out or passing in traffic, Xenon lights. Bluetooth for phone rocks. Much better than using my actual phone. Pretty much like all the main things that come on car. I am 6ft 4 so head and leg room is plenty. Seems to have way more room in back then other cars in class. Trunk is almost as big as my altima. They were smart to move to hydraulics on the trunk to allow more room.

Worst Features

Fog lights should be Xenon. Looks silly to have them dull light with bright headlights. I don't even turn them on anymore. More storage or more ergonomic storage. Hard to put anything in glove box due to iPOD connectors. Only two drink holders so nothing there either. MY titan has mucho storage so feels like they could squeeze more in. Backup sensors would be nice but wouldn't want the look of them on the bumper. There is always little things you want a car to improve on but the max did really well covering the bases.
